What to do?

Photo taken by yours truly 

I feel numb. The floods that are rampaging Queensland are just horrendous. I didn't sleep well last night. I was thinking about all of the people without a home, the separation of loved ones, the children, the animals, the death. Just the sheer terror of it all. It's just devastating.
I got out of bed at 5am and have spent my morning gazing at the paddocks out my back window. It's serene beauty bittersweet. I feel very fortunate to wake up with a sense of peace but also heartbroken for everyone else having to endure this horror.
I feel utterly helpless. The only thing I can do for now is donate to the Flood Appeal and the Red Cross. And of course to keep praying.

It's just  too too awful :(
